    5ton dump truck - mud flaps

    These are the flaps on a 929 bed that I have. They have a hook to hold the bottom of the flap up.

    5ton multi fuel power steering pump

    I had to replace the shaft in mine earlier this year, but I don't remember having any issues like you describe. Where does it seem to be binding? At the bolts, like they aren't aligned? Could be paint too thick in the bolt holes making it tough to keep the bolts in line.

    Manual transmission swap in m135 At one point, I was looking at doing a similar build to what you are. I found the gear vendor's unit that looked promising, but never got much farther on the concept. They claim to be good for up to 2000 hp engines and for 25,000 pound rvs. Would need...

    I assume that you are planning on putting the 205 t-case or auxiliary gearbox/brownie box between the new transmission and the original transfer case?

    Many M816 Questions

    Welcome to the site. I'm sure others will chime in with better answer's soon, but I think there is a governor to keep the rpms down some when running the wrecker part. I believe there is a lever of some sort in the wrecker controls that must be disengaged to go back to normal. And the...
